Skinny Tuesday

I lost 1.4 pounds at Weight Watchers last week, bringing my weight to 148. Our anniversary weekend is in three weeks and I'd really like to be down to 142 by then because that would be 10 pounds from my lifetime goal at WW, but I don't know that that's feasible. At the very least, I'd like to be down to 145.

I didn't go to Stroller Strides yesterday because we were making the offer on our house, but I hope to be there the rest of the week. If I'm not, I HAVE to make myself do some other kind of exercise.

I've done well so far this week as far as eating goes, but I have indulged in a few more sweets since Lent has been over. I'm really having to force myself to watch it because I want to eat them SO bad! My mom read an article that when you are sleep deprived you crave sweets more because of something your body isn't producing enough of when you aren't getting the sleep you need. Obviously, I wake up at least once a night with Brendan, so I am a *little* sleep deprived ;) He's starting to sleep more, so hopefully we'll fix that problem soon. I think battling my love of sweets is something that won't ever go away completely, though.

I've also not been so great at tracking my points, which is likely why I haven't lost weight as quickly as I usually do. I've more been trying to choose healthy options rather than really counting points. Right now, I am satisfied with that because I am still losing weight, even if it's slowly, but if the scale doesn't continue to go down, I'm really going to have to be more diligent about it.

How was your week?
